Today a woman who I was helping at the Crew asked me what I wanted to do. Or more clearly what kind of job I am ultimately looking for. My response was that of absolute honesty, "I would really just like to have consistent hours and enough money to buy groceries. . ."
And for once, the person I was talking too actually agreed and said something along the lines of "golly, that does sound like a perfectly acceptable answer" but obviously with more words and much more compassion and understanding. WHICH WAS SO COOL.
Because really, it gets a little dull knowing that everyone you help put in a dressing room internally thinks they are a bit better than you. Not all the time, just occasionally, they don't hide it so well. So when someone is legitimately interested in you as a person, and takes a minute to have a real conversation, it feels nice.
On an unrelated note, I need to go on some more adventures.
